Michigan Wolverines News
9-22-14: What a disastrous start to the season for the Wolverines. Michigan turned the ball over four times Saturday against Utah, bringing its total to 11 over the last three games. Devin Gardner was 14 of 26 passing for 148 yards with two interceptions. Michigan struggled to protect Gardner from Utah's defensive front as the Wolverines fell 26-10. Head coach Brady Hoke should be on the hot seat and I would not be shocked if he gets canned at season’s end if their downward trend continues. Michigan will look to turn things around this week as they host Minnesota.
9-9-14: Michigan's NCAA record streak of games without being shut out at 365 was snapped this past Saturday as the Wolverines were crushed 31-0 by Notre Dame. Michigan’s offense was and is a mess. Devin Gardner was 19-for-32 for 189 yards and he committed four second-half turnovers for Michigan. Michigan has now lost its 11th straight road game to a ranked team. Their last win came in South Bend in 2006. Head coach Brady Hoke is now 7-12 away from Ann Arbor. Michigan hosts Miami of Ohio this weekend.
9-4-14: The last time Michigan played Appalachian State in 2007, Appalachian was an FCS program and shocked Michigan 34-32 in Ann Arbor. Well, that didn’t happen this time around as the Wolverines dominated last week crushing the Mountaineers 52-14. Michigan gained 560 total, including 350 on the ground. Quarterback Devin Gardner threw three touchdowns, all to Devin Funchess. Derrick Green rushed for 170 yards and a TD, and De'Veon Smith added rushing 115 yards and two scores. They will need a repeat performance this week as the Wolverines travel to South Bend to take on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. The Irish are ranked No. 16 in the AP Top 25.
